Four Oh


I’m back from my holiday break and feeling rather well rested.  I am dying to head into my craft room, but with my 6-year-old still on holiday, it’s proving to be near on impossible!


CSI’s latest challenge is open for investigation, along with another beautiful sketch by our Em.  Take a look:

And here is how I solved this stunning case:


Scheme : all there

Evidence : grid, circles

Testimony : document a birthday

Turning 40 has always sounded very daunting to me; it’s safe to say that it was not something I was particularly looking forward to.  However, as I neared said age, so many of my friends had told me that ‘something happens when you turn 40’ … so I was kinda looking forward to that.  Being that I am always worried about what people think of me (being a people pleaser is not for the faint hearted), I just wanted to wake up one day and really just not obsess about being liked.

Well, I can say that it HAS happened – to a point.  I do still worry, but not half as much as I used to.

To celebrate turning 40, I threw a big party at one of my favourite golf clubs, and invited all my friends.  It was a great evening and everyone took the time to dress up according to the theme.  I will never forget celebrating with my friends.

And as for being 40?  It’s not that bad after all!

Here are some close ups:

  1. You are beautiful and definitely don’t look 40! Love the wordplay in your title and those layered circles and especially your story!


  2. I just have to say you look amazing for a 40 year old. I too turned 40 last year and I wasn’t looking forward to it either, but I am finding that I am more accepting of myself than ever before. Fantastic layout. Love how bright it is and it’s the perfect party page. xx


  3. Love this layout and the sentiment behind it! I think we all dread the 4 0 but its not so bad when we get there!
